Woods Not Surprised to Lose No. 1 Spot in Rankings

Monday, 01 Nov 2010 08:59 AM

 

YOKOHAMA, Japan — Tiger Woods says he wasn't surprised to lose golf's No. 1 ranking to England's Lee Westwood after a disappointing year.

Westwood claimed the top spot Sunday to end a record run by Woods, who had been the world's No. 1 golfer for 281 consecutive weeks.

Woods said that in order to be ranked No. 1 you have to win, "and I didn't win this year."

Woods played an exhibition at Yokohama Country Club on Monday against Japanese teenager Ryo Ishikawa. He is preparing for the HSBC Championship in Shanghai, which starts Thursday at Sheshan International.

Woods had been No. 1 since the week before the 2005 U.S. Open, where he was runner-up. He won the British Open a month later and his ranking had rarely been threatened until this year.
